Sixty seconds to run, sixty seconds to go
One minute to leave before you blow
Blood starts to shed and screams start to howl
This arena is already to foul
Running into the forest, where I think it’s safe
It’s the thirst and heat I really hate
As I walk further into the woods, the deeper I go
I realize I’m live on TV, on a show
People are watching, waiting, keeping a close eye
Waiting to see if I live or die
As I go through hell, I tell myself “Just keep going”
Because If I don’t, it’s my blood that will be spilling
The Hunger Games, a sick cruel game
Where the people are hunters, and also prey
I am the hunter, not the hunted.
I won’t be killed, fooled or confronted.
The Mockingjays fly and sing above
It’s my family, not winning, that I love.
I promised Prim I’d really try
I tell myself I will not die
Katniss Everdeen is my name
And I am playing in the Hunger Games.
